Could you wrap the bucket with tinfoil?
That should limit gas exchange significantly.

I don't think wrapping it in Foil would do much. Air gets behind it no problem, and oxygen would diffuse at nearly the same rate. Maybe if you glued foil or some O2 inpermeable barrier to the bucket. There gets to be a point where you should just buy a better bottle or glass carboy.

I agree with RDWHAHB tin foil would do essentially nothing, as gas will diffuse anywhere it wants

I still think the sides of the bucket are a lesser issue than the seal around the lid, Id bet thats where most all of the o2 gets into the bucket
